Pain Management for Horses with Laminitis: Where Are We Now?
When an owner makes the difficult decision to euthanize a horse with laminitis, it's often because the horse is simply in too much pain to justify prolonging treatment. For this reason, researchers are continually trying to come up with improved analgesic (pain relief) methods. Andrew van Eps, BVSc, PhD, MACVSc, Dipl. ACVIM, senior lecturer in Equine Medicine at The University of Queensland School of Veterinary Science, reviewed current pain management options for laminitic horses at the 2013 International Equine Conference on Laminitis and Diseases of the Foot, held Nov. 1-3 in West Palm Beach, Fla.

Power Posture for Peak Performance
While some mental training tools require a bit of time and effort (like goal-setting), this month's tip, Power Postures, can take you from a worrier to a warrior in no time at all... and with very little effort!
Often referred to as "putting on your game face" recent research has proven that simply standing in a confident manner (imagine wonder woman or superman with wide legs, chest open, and hands on hips) can lead to an almost immediate release of testosterone and cortisol, two hormones linked to improved confidence and self-image. It seems that simply striking a power pose can actually change how you perceive and carry yourself, approach challenges, solve problems and cope with pressure; and that as little as a minute or two can boost your confidence for up to 20-minutes (perhaps even longer if you consider that looking good makes you feel good, which makes you ride well, which makes you feel good and so on).

The Pet Store
Happy Black Friday, if that's your thing. If you are anything like me, you won't dare step foot in a store today (actually, I mainly shop online all year round). Perhaps Cyber Monday is more your speed. Either way, the holiday shopping season is here. Have you made your gift lists? Personally, I like to buy little presents for my dogs (and dogs owned by friends and family). Sure, pets don't really get the concept of holiday gift giving and all the festivities, but I think the point is that it's fun for us. I have such a blast watching my dog tear open her gifts! Are you ooking for some presents for the dogs in your life? More info...
